Community, Home, Cultural Awareness and Language Training (CHCALT): A Design for Teacher Training in Multi-Cultural Education. A Program Outline for the Bilingual/Cross-Cultural Specialist Credential.
Mazon, M. Reyes
The Institute for Cultural Pluralism, a resource facility in multicultural education in the School of Education at San Diego State University, has been assigned to develop the Bilingual/Cross-Cultural Specialist Credential (BCCSC) Program plan. The basis of the BCCSC Program is the Community, Home, Cultural Awareness, and Language Training (CHCALT) model. The CHCALT model is based on nine features, which are considered essential to any multicultural education program. Incorporating these nine elements as the major goals of the program, the CHCALT teacher training model is divided into the following four basic components: (1) philosophy of education for the culturally and linguistically different, (2) sociocultural awareness, (3) oral language and assessment techniques, and (4) diagnostic and prescriptive strategies. These components make up the four phases used in the implementation of the CHCALT training model. (The four phases of the CHCALT teacher training model are discussed in detail. The appendix presents diagrams of the CHCALT model.) (BD)
